Who we are

Chantal et David Genecand,
co-founders of the Almondgy® brand

 

 

Harmony at home, harmony at work.

 

Chantal Genecand co-founder of Almondgy®, loves being on the move, discovering and sharing things, inspiring others, learning and innovating. From yoga (I give Ashtanga Vinyasa classes),to running (I run behind my husband) to experimenting in the kitchen (it doesn’t always work but for David “it’s excellent, darling!”) to hiking and travelling, my biggest fault is that I regularly move the furniture, trinkets and other little things around the house so it’s not easy to follow me ;O.

My dream: to cure people through their diet.

 

David Genecand co-founder of Almondgy® loves sport and everything to do with the “physically, mentally and emotionally healthy sportsman”, loves sharing discoveries (“I test everything with my wife”) and giving conferences (Chantal:”He loves talking to people and he is an excellent listener!”). David is inquisitive and open-minded. Nothing stops him (“I never let go!”). He is artistic, aesthetic and a perfectionist. It may sound incredible but David worked in the financial sector of the food industry for 20 years ;O. “My biggest failing is that I am a great optimist,” (According to Chantal: “Since I have known David, I have never seen him down or bad-tempered, even at 6 o’clock in the morning!”)

My dream: to reach the possible just beyond the impossible.
